The American Avocet found by Myles Stokowski a few days ago was still present on the southwest bank at Mecox inlet in Southampton at 4:15.
It’s in with a group of mainly Greater black backed gulls, looking skinny. Many people were skampering about the shore of the pond 50 feet from the bird and, with nice weekend weather forecast, many more are incoming. Wonder how long it will hang out? I’ll check back early tomorrow morning. -Chris Sent from my iPod -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NYSBirds-L 3) http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NY01 Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
